On this, the shortest day of the year, it was surprisingly mild at a heady 9C. Normally we would be in the depths of winter and have a bit of snow around. Of course it is still there on the higher tops, it was just that I couldn’t see it today. There were some interesting conditions to be observed from lowly Latterbarrow though with the low lying mist hanging in the valleys and across Windermere.
